International RJ WEEK 2015

The International RESTORATIVE JUSTICE WEEK will take place between 15-22 November 2015.

As in the previous years, the theme will be INSPIRING INNOVATION. In 2013, the EFRJ joined this event by designing postcards which were sent across Europe in digital and printed versions. In 2014, the EFRJ encouraged local teams across Europe and beyond to organize a ‘RJ Lunch on Inspiring Innovation‘ and produced the video-documentary ‘Restorative justice. Inspiring the future of a just society for all‘.

This year the EFRJ will celebrate it with a series of events in Leuven (Belgium)! On Wednesday 18 November, at the end of the ALTERNATIVE conference on RJ in conflicts in intercultural settings (16-18 November), there will be a theatre play performed by a Norwegian group, a book presentation from a Belgian author and a film screening from a German director. On this day, the EFRJ will also celebrate its 15th anniversary!

Find below the detailed programme of the RJ WEEK 2015 in Leuven! Feel free to spread the poster of the RJ WEEK 2015 within your network! If you cannot join us in Leuven, other events are taking place across Europe: keep us informed if you are organising one of them and we will give it visibility on the EFRJ website and social media!
